GPNY Mt.Kisco, NY Holds 7th Round Of Adult League
Racing NewsMt Kiscoís Grand Prix NY held the 7th round of its fall adult racing league this past Tuesday. Running the new configuration of their supertrack, many of the competitors have figured out where they can make their moves. First up this evening was a combined group of GTU (175lb) and GTBB (245lb) since the weekend weather kept a number of competitors from this eveningís event. In the GTU class Gary Megennis earned the pole with a time of 47.62 while GTBB pole winner, Adrian Salageneau, had a time of 47.92. Salageanuís time would have landed him in 5th starting position, but each heat was run with a split start. This led to confusion at the start of the first heat as track marshals waved the green a half lap early Ė GTU got off to a clean start, but the GTBB guys jumped all over Salageaneau and he dropped to 4th by the end of the first lap. Up front, Megennis held off a very fast Ross Pisarkiewicz to grab the win Ė only .12 seconds between the two! Meanwhile, Phil Paraggio grabbed fastest lap of the heat (46.912) on his way to third place. Back in the pack, Cory Rossi and Michael Cohen battled their way up to 6th and 7th overall for a 1-2 in GTBB while Dave Harmon was able to just hold off a charging Salageneau to finish third. Cohen set the fat lap for GTBB with a time of 47.55. Heat two inverted qualifying so that put Patrick Bartsiewicz on pole with Lauren Horowitz second. On pole for GTBB was Harmon with Cohen right behind. At the drop of the green the racers were nose to tail as the GTBB guys were able to creep up on the GTU field at the start. Horowitz was able to dispatch Bartsiewicz after lap one and didnít put a wheel wrong on her way to victory. Close behind, Dave Laphan and Mark Eickelbck diced for second place honors. Back in 5th place, Steve Eickelbeck snagged fastest lap with a 47.127. In GTBB, Harmon was able to take advantage of the continuation of the Meggenis and Pisakiewicz battle when they both ran wide in the hairpin. Putting distance between himself and Rossi, Harmon was able to get up to 6th overall and take his second victory of the season. Behind him Rossi and Salageneau battled all race long with Rossi getting the position, but Salageneau earning the fastest lap of the race with a time of 47.517.

The next group this evening was the GTO (205lb) guys. At the end of qualifying, Stevan McAleer, running for fun and no points grabbed pole position with a time of 46.535. Behind him, Alex Eickelbeck got the bonus point for fast lap in qualifying with Andrew Wood close behind him in third. At the drop of the green McAleer checked out and left Eickelbeck, Wood and Bobby Sayers to battle. At the end, Sayers was able to slip past Wood to grab third with one lap left. Heat two inverted qualifying and that put Ennis Bragg, who in a strategy move purposely qualifyied last in order to start on pole. Behind him were Chris Suether and Michael Cohen. The strategy paid off as Ennis ran unchallenged for the win. Behind him, however, carnage took its toll as both Cohen and Suether were out of the race by lap 13. Tom Caspar and Sayers fought their way through to finish 2nd and 3rd respectively. With a two week break until the final round, tempers can cool off and a look at the points will dictate strategy.
